Decked Out


  • Bugged Out at Unknown

    Bugged Out return to the Unknown festival in Croatia this September. We’ll be hosting one of the boat parties and generally dancing to acts like Dixon, Daniel Avery, Erol Alkan and DJ Harvey in an incredible leafy setting by the sea (literally yards from the ocean). There’s loads of great bands on too like ChVrches, Ten Walls and Moderat as well as Nile Rogers and Chic who will be amazing on the Forest stage. All the details so far here.

  • Andrew Weatherall b2b Daniel Avery at XOYO March 28th

    Andrew Weatherall returns to Bugged Out for the umpteenth time. He first played for us in 1995 and remains one of our favourites DJs here in our 20th year. We can say the same for Justin Robertson who has also been along for the ride all this time and can give Weatherall a run for his money in the hirsute/sartorial stakes. Weatherall goes b2b with Mr Drone Logic Daniel Avery for 4 hours on the night. Joining them is a very special guest who we will announce late Feb! The latest Phantasy signing Ghost Culture and Lemmy Ashton complete the bill.

  • Bugged Out at Parklife – Sunday June 8th

    We are thrilled to be part of this year’s mega Parklife line up on Manchester’s Heaton Park, June 8th. The line up for the festival is incredible though we’ll be soaking up the sounds in the Bugged Out tent all day with Carl Cox headlining! Also on the bill is Nina Kraviz, Weekender fave Skream, Jackmaster & Oneman’s Can U Dance opus, Scuba and George Fitzgerald. All details for the weekend event are here.

  • Erol Alkan’s next LDN show March 22nd

    Were you there for Erol’s brilliant set on NYE? Seeing in 2014 to his ‘Hold On Love’ track never sounded so good. His next London show takes place at the awesome Area club in Vauxhall where we held November’s Chemical Brothers show. Joining Erol are the legendary Emperor Machine with his first DJ set in London for 5 years, Bugged Out favourite Matt Walsh and U from Man Make Music. Tickets from here.

  • New additions to Field Day

    Some great new additions announced for Field Day on Saturday June 7th, Victoria Park. The mighty SBTRKT returns with a new album and live show to headline the Bugged Out stage, there’s some great b2b sets with Erol Alkan going head to head with Daniel Avery, Jackmaster spars with Oneman too for an exclusive set called Can U Dance? Gerd Janson and Eclair FiFi have also been added to Bugged Out and the Resident Advisor stage has a live headline from Todd Terje. Also announced for the Red Bull stage are Lunice, Ryan Hemsworth, Evian Christ, Barely Legal, Sophie, Slackk b2b Samename, Vessel and Moxie. The full line up so far and ticket details are at Field Day.

  • Fake Blood, XOYO 31.1.14

    On the 31st of January we welcome back Fake Bood for our first show of the year at XOYO. First gaining notoriety for his hard hitting remixes for the likes of Little Boots and the Black Ghosts, his solo productions, including the massive smash ‘Mars’ put him firmly on the map culminating in his debut album ‘Cells’ earlier last year. His recent Fabric Live mix was nominated for the DJ magazine Best of British and – alongside artists like Boy 8 Bit also playing tonight – is raising the profile of his label ‘Blood Music’ to new highs. Club Cheval and Bromance cohort Canblaster also guests and Room 2 is hosted by the Drm Rll Pls.
